I notice that if I start with "emacs -nw", there is no NSApp (no icon in
the osx dock). When I use "emacsclient -c" to open a NS frame, the icon
shows up. My idea here is, if I close every NS frame, can we destroy the
NSApp and make it nil again (say by testing the frame count) ? If this
is possible, it at least make emacsclient more usable; and I don't need
to restart Emacs.

Cheers,
